NORWICH BULLETIN : MONDAY OCTOBER f 29, 1917 - ,- . TWO MEN KILLED STRUCK BY EXPRESS Charles Wheaton and Louis Prue Wars Driving Home From ' Garden Saturday Evening. ' - Charles Wheaton . and Xouls Brue, both , of this city. were instantly kffl- ed and their bodies horribly mangled when 'the wagon in which they were riding-'.w struck by. the New Xork- Boston express, due in this city at 6.82. The accident occurred on the Columbia road, about 100" feet inside of the city limits at 6.40 Saturday ew- ieninjr. j. Both men were -carried about 40 Jfeet by th engine. Prue's body was dragged the furthest. The top or his head was taken completely off and his brains were scattered along1 the tracks. His arms and legs wre broken In -several places and his body waa gashed. Wheaton si body was also mangled, and his arms and legs 'were broken in several places. iSoth 'men were cut -about the face, but iden (tifl cation was easy. j The wagon was demolished, parts of 'it being carried ISO feet. The horse Shadf a gash about eighteen inches 'otig i and six inches deep on his flank-. -He (was able to walk but his owner or j dered him shot. j The engineer on the train, which iwas about fifteen minutes late, was named Potter. The brakes were ap plied as soon as the engineer became 'aware of the accident. i Medical ExaminerW. L. Hlggins of .South Coventry . was notified and the I bodies were not moved until he ar 'rived. Wheaton was immediately 'Identified and iPrue was- recognized later. The men were going to Prue's gar den to get some cabbages and left this city about 6.30. Although no cab. bagea were scattered ' around where the accident happened, from the po sition of the horse and. the bodies, it looks as if the men were returning to this city when struck. The crossing Is in a bad place, as a sand bank hides the tracks until one gets on the railroad and the noise of the wag ion wheels on the cement road prob iably deadened all noise of the ap f preaching train. Wheaton is survived by his wife and th-es children. Prue leaves a wife and two children. THE. WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD KNOWS Mrs. Anna Pelzer,2526 Jefferson St., iSo. Omaha.
